We’ve already discussed how great Tom Hardy is, and he’s added another page to the Tom Hardy Is Great book that now that I think about it I might write. In Lawless he’s the leader of a moonshine makin’ family during Prohibition. It’s based on a true story and you’d believe he’s the actual guy and not an English actor.
And remember how in Batman he was shot at angles that made him look huge? In Lawless he underplays like crazy, he’s hardly audible most of time, and he wears cardigans. The whole movie. Cardigans. At one point, he’s wearing a sweater vest under a cardigan, and he still seems completely scary, even though he might also break into a song about being your neighbor. So in a weird mouth-breather apparatus in Gotham or a cardigan in the hills, he’s equally chilling. That’s range, folks.
Shia has a tougher time making you forget he’s a guy who talks to his car that’s also a popular toy and he used to be on Even Stevens. But I saw him on ChelseaLately and he seemed like a kind of cool hippie kid or something, so maybe that’s the way he should go. He should for sure shy away from cardigans. He’s no Tom Hardy.
How you feel about this movie is going to be heavily, heavily influenced by how you feel about Dax Shepard. If you’re like me (and I believe a good 13, maybe 14% of you are), then your feelings about him are mixed to none. I thought he was a jackass, like from the show, but it turns out it was Punk’d, and I was surprised to find he’s engaged to Kristen Bell, his co-star in this movie that he wrote and directed.
It’s kind of hard to imagine if you have the jackass image in your head, but in this movie they are really kind of adorable together and you’ll be able to kind of see it.
Another surprise in the film is that Tom Arnold is really funny and likable. I had him in my head as the tag-along OK comic who got semi-famous by marrying Roseanne and surviving. He’s way past that here, and IMDb says he’s the voice of an oven mitt, so we’ve all learned something about judging, haven’t we? Going forward, you 13, maybe 14%, let’s try to be better people. Let’s give Dax and Kristen a chance, and maybe think of Tom Arnold next time you enjoy a Jamocha shake.
